SHINE 2022

Returning for its eighth year, October 14-23, 2022, the SHINE St. Petersburg Mural Festival will once again ignite the City of the Arts with a diverse collection of public art from renowned local, national and international mural artists. The festival, which has received widespread international attention, is an outdoor art exhibition aimed at celebrating art for art’s sake.  During SHINE, 18 new murals including 3 community Bright Spot murals and 2 painted vehicles will be added to the art districts and surrounding neighborhoods of St. Petersburg’s downtown. Artists will be working throughout the week to complete their mural before the SHINE Grand Finale.

This year we are featuring: 

THIRTEEN Local Artists! 

• Jeff Williams, St. Petersburg; Dream Weaver, St. Petersburg; Van Der Luc, St. Petersburg; Ashley Cantero, Tampa; Egypt Hagan, Tampa; Sydney Prusso, Dunedin; Tasko, Clearwater; Jason Harvin, Tampa; Chad Mize & Friends, St. Petersburg; Alyssa Marie, St. Petersburg; Vitale Brothers, St. Petersburg; Nneka Jones, Tampa; Amy Ilic-Volpe, St. Petersburg

Four International Artists!

In addition to the creation of 18 murals, six of those local artists will be participating in a Bright Spot Community Project!  These community projects are an opportunity for artists to interact and create a work of art with community members. This establishes a sense of fellowship that results in community pride, belonging, beautification and safety that all leans towards health and well-being…an artful gesture of love.
